Portrait of John Glenn
John Glenn was the first American to orbit the earth;
he orbited three times in 1962. He was also the first person
to make a supersonic transcontinental flight across America,
where his camera took the first panoramic picture of the United States. In 1998, John Glenn went back into space on the shuttle Discovery, making him the oldest person to have ever gone to space.
John Glenn was truly a leader by its definition,
paving the way for others to try new and incredible things,
never stopping until he made the impossible possible.
